Review of Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack (GMK)

Godzilla movies often having a hard time standing out from the rest of the series, but Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack has something special going for it. None other than the great Shusuke Kaneko, director of the fantastic 90s Gamera Trilogy, took the director’s chair for this one. The result is a fantastically entertaining and engaging entry in the series. However, much like with Gamera, there were some major changes to the Godzilla lore along the way.

Review of Godzilla vs Hedorah

Godzilla vs Hedorah is a special one. Over the long course of Godzilla’s career, there have been great movies, and terrible ones.

Review of Zeiram

In all honesty, I stumbled across Zeiram by accident. At the time, I was looking into buying a used DVD of Gunhed, another Japanese science fiction film, when both this film and it’s sequel came out as recommended on Amazon. Unlike the aforementioned Gunhed (which is currently out of print) Zeiram was pretty affordable, so I took a chance and ordered the Tokyo Shock DVD for $10. A few days later, when I finally sat down to watch it, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but came away not only satisfied but quite entertained. Continue reading “Review of Zeiram”
